As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins… (Ephesians 2:1)
The key word here is were.
You were dead, crushed lifeless by the weight of the sin you chose and the sin that was yours by birthright. You were dead, without life or light or hope or breath.
Your past is death.
Your present? Your future?
So much life.
You have been taken from death and, at great cost, restored to life.
So live this day, Beloved.
